Structures of Charter School Networks in New York

When it comes to setting up a charter school in New York, there are important considerations to ensure success and sustainability. What is the most effective model for operating a network of charter schools in New York? Is a central oversight organization needed? To answer these and other important questions, experts from Classical Charter Schools, which operates several charter schools in New York City, the law firm Barton Gilman LLP, and PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP teamed up to develop this analysis.

Using Data to Drive Innovation in a Time of Uncertainty

The ability to open new schools without compromising instructional quality is unique. In this article, we break down how Classical has managed to achieve this through consistency, systemization, and data-analysis. We also explore if the systems that have allowed us to scale, will also allow us to adapt to the unprecedented circumstances and long-term uncertainty covid-19 presents.


Novus is a proprietary application created by the data team at Classical that allows teachers to get real time analysis on how their scholars perform on each question, standard, or question type of a test, allowing Classical to create a truly individualized education for all scholars. Novus saves teachers at Classical 173 hours a year in time spent on data analysis. Novus also provides instructional coaches with data-based insights from which they can make informed coaching decisions.
